Hi, so yesterday I went to LB Pride and this is my 1st pride has an open transgender male or FTM (female to male).
I found it extremely hard to approach any girl because of how I look.
I 100% like girls still (was lesbian before I started my transition) and when it comes to dating or flirting, I am super shy.
So being trans makes me more shy and afraid because of my appearance and voice. share their stories and experiences with me or anything!
I feel like next pride in a few weeks, I have to wear something that says "I' M TRANS" so people know I still have breasts or something. I feel really hopeless with girls I know lesbians won't want me so I no idea what to do with myself. I get really sad and put myself down because I think I have no chance with anyone. Really, trying to date is one of those complex, and annoying things that nobody ever told you about.
Same goes for balancing a checkbook, writing a resume, and stuff like that.
My suggestion would be to do stuff you enjoy, and find other people who enjoy those same things.
You can be openly trans, or stealth (and tell them later if you get a date).
You will get hit on by the guys if you pass, girls not so much as they date only girls.
So yeah best try and find somewhere outside of pride if you want to find a girl.
But other then that go for it have fun with the pride group and make friends. And it will get easyer once your further into transition and will get more confident over time.
